    I was at the Spector web site and saw a Quicktime movie of Quintin Berry playing. I've never heard of this guy but he has the most unique tap/slap style I have ever seen. It's hard to describe: He wears the bass very high and curves his arm underneath. Check out the movies at http://spectorbass.com/NewFiles/webmovies.html to see for yourself.

    What are your thoughts on this technique?
  2. Well as far as the technique, I'd say it's mainly for "Wow!" factor though it could just be personal preference/comfort. I've seen those clips though and, regardless of how he holds/plays the bass, he is most definitely d@mn good.
